DOMINQUE VORILLON

We loved working on our summer issue and hope you enjoy the homes featured including a beach front home in Santa Barbara, a beautiful apartment on the water in Marina del Rey, a remodeled home in Lafayette and of course our yearly coverage of the San Francisco Showcase House. In additional we have traveled to Michigan to share with you a lake front vacation home built and designed for Californians who really want to get away. If yachting is your preference please read the story on the Tracy Lynn, a Fleming 55 yacht anchored in Newport harbor. Summer has traditionally been our “kitchen issue” and this year we are proud to present some beautiful kitchens designed by California designers. The fall issue of California Homes will be out in August and then with November/December 2017 we begin, once again, as a bi-monthly publication. Have a wonderful summer.

THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART – LOS ANGELES

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) presents Jonas Wood: Still life with Two Owls. Jonas Wood is known for his hard-edged, exuberantly colored watercolor drawings and paintings, which frequently depict the everyday spaces of his studio and garden. Wood’s new work—a new outdoor mural designed specifically to wrap the exterior of MOCA Grand Avenue—gleefully exhibits a strong cut-andpaste sensibility through its layering of shapes and forms. Meant to be seen by pedestrians or through the windows of moving cars, Wood’s mural treats the urban architecture of Downtown L.A. as a dynamic canvas on which to further explore his playful manipulation of scale, texture, color, and pattern.

Noguchi’s Playscapes presents ideas about the democratization of art and public space by Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988). Observing that playgrounds offer a physical and social interaction not typically seen in a museum, Noguchi designed a number of public spaces where visitors could actively engage with art. The exhibition gathers his designs for several playgrounds, stand-alone play structures and other works that, while serious in subject, employ playful elements to engage the viewer. The exhibition is on view from July 15 through November 26, 2017. For more information please call 415.357.4000 or visit www.sfmoma.org.

PASADENA MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA ART

California artist E. Charlton Fortune (1885–1969) came of age during a time when women began to challenge the status quo and redefine their expected roles in society. E. Charlton Fortune: The Colorful Spirit, an exhibition on view at the Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA) August 20, 2017–January 7, 2018, showcases the work of this trailblazing female and one of California’s most significant artists. Fortune had a thriving career as a painter until the age of fortythree when she began a pioneering new vocation as a liturgical artist and as the leader of the Monterey Guild. The exhibition pairs the artist’s impressionist and modernist landscapes with her ecclesiastical paintings, furnishings, and other work produced for the Catholic Church.

SULLIVAN GOSS AN AMERICAN GALLERY –SANTA BARBARA

Sullivan Goss is bringing a taste of the historic L.A. art scene to its Santa Barbara gallery in time for summer. The L.A. in S.B. run through July 30, 2017. With all the media focus on Los Angeles as a new global art capital, the curators at Sullivan Goss thought it would be fun to dig through the gallery’s inventory to find some context for the city’s emergence. How did L.A. get to be such an important art center? Angelenos will have to drive north to find out. Much of the City’s art history lies buried between two great stories. One story relates to the development of Los Angeles as a capital of plein air Impressionism. The other story relates to the so-called Cool School that was centered around Venice Beach and the infamous Ferus Gallery on La Cienega. The stretch between Impressionism and the Cool School – the 30s, 40s, and early 50s – is frequently verlooked. That period saw the simultaneous rise of a nationally known Regionalism as well as the import of international Modernist styles like Expressionism and Cubism.

San Francisco Tastemaker Jonathan Rachman joins forces with deGournay the 40th Decorator’s Showcase THE FABRIC HOUSE DE GOURNAY collaborated with designer Jonathan Rachman who was inspired by the friendship of couturier Hubert de Givenchy and his muse Audrey Hepburn. The room became the main salon of activity and laughter throughout the run of the show. “For me de Gournay equals the ultimate fashionable luxury with a classic personality. I love the amazing old school technique of de Gournay artisans and de Gournay’s personal service as well as the endless possibilities of materials, colorways and design.” says Rachman. The ‘Silk Tree’ wallpaper creates the feeling of strolling down a tree-lined street. The design has been hand painted in a custom colorway onto an Emerald Green dyed silk ground. Elements of the design have then been hand embroidered to add depth and dimension. The pink blossoming flowers against the vibrant green hue is an original, bold and beautiful color palette, which brings a fresh and modern twist to a classically inspired design.

CONSTANT REINVENTION

William Hefner and his business partner and wife, Kazuo Hoshino, integrate the interior and architecture BY KAVITA DASWANI

WILLIAM HEFNER NODDED APPROVINGLY at the gleaming coffee set that had just been brought in - an octagonal tray, an elongated pot, a curved container holding miniature cubes of brown sugar. “We’ve been working on our coffee service,” said the architect. “Maybe we can add a little piece of chocolate? We’re designers. We’re always trying to make things better.” It is that quest for aesthetic refinement that has garnered Hefner’s company, Studio William Hefner, a roster of enviable jobs in the US and around the world since he established it in 1989: he and his team are currently working on a trio of 20,000 square foot homes in Los Angeles, a project in Israel, another in Madrid. Two years ago, Studio William Hefner wrapped the 60,000 square foot Chateau des Fleurs in Bel-Air - an eight-year stint that necessitated four trips to France

50 | CALIFORNIA HOMES


- including time in the Loire Valley - to feel intimately familiar with chateaux and their details. Hefner and his wife, Kazuo Hoshino, the firm’s principal of interior design, were in a conference room in their busy two-story office overlooking Los Angeles’ La Brea Tar Pits, next to the Los Angeles County Museum of Arts. Overhead, cube-shaped paper lantern-style lights dangled from the ceiling above a white stone table. In the room, everything had its place. Hefner, whose father was an attorney and mother a teacher, grew up in Sacramento where, he recalls, he began sketching house plans at the age of eight. “I loved construction, design and building. I used to dream about big estates. I’d tell my parents, ‘we should move’. It would make my (siblings) cry. I had that kind of restlessness about my environment.” Although, as Hefner concedes, “Sacramento is not the most aesthetic spot in the world”, he travelled a great deal with his family as a child,and was exposed to fine art and architecture at an early age. “My parents had a college friend who was an architect and he

remodelled our home a couple of times. He’d come in with his yellow tracing paper and I’d want to sit and hear about what he was doing. That’s how I got hooked.” Hefner and Hoshino met when she was working at a showroom in the Pacific Design Center, where he was sourcing fabrics for a client. They have long shared the same design heroes: Peter Marino, Jean-Michel Frank. When Hefner is asked for his opinion on a particular swatch or materials choice, he often discovers that his wife had chosen the exact same one. “I love fabrics, wallpaper, colors,” said Hoshino of her focus in the company. “The furniture really has to go with the vision of the architecture. We work on projects together, where we integrate the interior and architecture - are the walls plaster or paint or wallpaper, what kind of details the cabinets should have, what feeling does this bring to the room?” Social media, they said, has made the lives of designers and architects easier in some ways, more challenging in others. “Before, we had to convince clients from our drawings,” said Hoshino.

SPRING 2017 | 51


Architecture

“Now, they come in with their Pinterest boards, and say: ‘it’s going to look like that’. They are fed by all that information out there, the Instagram posts they see from their friends. Maybe somewhere along the way, imagination gets left behind.” And the restlessness that underscored Hefner’s childhood years - does he still feel that? “It comes in waves,” he said. “Mostly we’re too busy to think about changing things around us. But I think in the next year or two we will move into another house in our area.” Hoshino chimes in. “We’ve worked on five houses of our own in about 20 years,” she said. “People say, ‘are you flipping houses?’ But we’re not. We just like it. We have different houses for different periods of our lives. Our tastes change and our houses show that. It’s about constant reinvention.” CH

ALWAYS WORK HARD! That is interior

designer Barclay Butera’s number one factor to building his ultra-successful brand, Barclay Butera, Inc. Over the last 20 and some years, Barclay has honed his design aesthetic to a tee— coastal chic, not fussy, comfortable and elegant. “My work has always had an underlying coastal appeal,” says Butera, yet he is just as comfortable in traditional, as he is with transitional and contemporary interiors. His resume boasts countless residential interiors; a Home Collection with product for every room—from sofas to beds, lighting to art, mattresses to rugs; three retail boutiques— Newport Beach, Park City and Corona del Mar; and he has penned five coffee table books. His latest endeavor is a foray into licensing, and he will reveal a new line, Barclay Butera for Lexington, with esteemed furnishings company Lexington Home Brands at High Point Market this fall. “It has been a longtime dream of mine to have a spectacularly beautiful, comprehensive collection of furnishings available around the country,” says Butera. “I am honored and grateful to have Lexington Home Brands as my partner.” Lexington Home Brands issued the following statement. “A design license makes sense when

the collaboration adds significant value to the product … In the case of our partnership with Barclay Butera, we are totally confident in our ability to add [that] value based on the strength of his design aesthetic, its relevance to our target audience and the pressing need for an updated interpretation of tradition in the marketplace.” The collaboration will generate two full indoor lifestyle collections, each with complete living, dining and bedroom options. “Both of the launch debuts have shades of inspiration from my extensive travels, fashion and my love for old Hollywood,” says Butera. “They have a glamorous touch, but are completely comfortable and livable at the same time.” In fact, he shares that he is so excited about this offering that he is planning a few revamps using several of the new designs in his own homes. The collections will work as well in a residential space, as a commercial property. “I can see many pieces fitting seamlessly into luxury hotels around the world,” he says. For a man who had a brief stint in law school, ‘Can you imagine?’ he says, Butera certainly has found his true calling. His other two most important factors to his success? “Have integrity when it comes to your clients and stay humble. If you follow that path the rest all falls into place.” CH

Usually, an artist will paint a beautiful landscape bursting in bright sunlight with colorful trees and flowers, things one would expect to see during the day.

After almost 100 years this family-owned business is still thriving BY VANESSA KOGEVINAS

design company, von Hemert Interiors was born of Anna Martin von Hemert who started a little boutique fabric house, The Chintz Shop, selling cut yardage, luxurious velvets and brocades across from the Los Angeles Farmers Market in 1920. Cut to the present day and von Hemert Interiors is thriving as both a furniture showroom—one in Costa Mesa and one in Torrance—and a full-service interior design firm. “We are most known for a traditional aesthetic,” says Carrie von Hemert, Anna Martin’s grand daughter who serves as von Hermet Interiors’ Creative Director. “Our Italian product sets us apart, but I think we are really known for carrying unique high-end furniture and great accent pieces.” On the interior design side they cater to everything from entire residences to window coverings and paint to, of course, furnishings.

In addition to a traditional aesthetic, their showrooms also feature more modern, midcentury and transitional pieces and upholstery offerings. Lines they represent include Stickley, Theodore Alexander, Century Interiors, Hancock & Moore, American Leather, Lexington Home Brands, Marge Carson and John Richard—to name a few. “I was very much influenced by growing up in the family business. I always loved fashion and always loved art,” says Carrie, who studied interior design at Chico State. Her sister Kelly works alongside her on the business end of things, following in her father, Barry’s footsteps, who used his degree in business to open two stores with his father Theodore—the flagship in Costa Mesa in 1977 and a second in Torrance in 1978. The family had moved their Los Angeles location to Laguna Beach in the 1950s. Kelly who serves as the Business Controller of the company, also exhibits a true passion for the entire business. “My favorite part of my job is to take a break and see what is outside the office door,” she says. “No business rules or math formulas give me the same kind of wonder and joy that comes from experiencing a beautiful room.” In true keeping with its being a family business, Susan—Carrie and Kelly’s mother, and Barry’s wife—is SUMMER 2017 | 63

also involved. “For over forty five years my father and mother, have made countless buying trips to Italy, Spain and China,” says Carrie —and the sisters continue to make time to take sourcing trips. “I went to Italy after taking an art history class in college and was so inspired,” says Carrie. “Everything that I learned about, I got to see in person. That to me was very exciting—that I can work with all kinds of things that I have studied and help people realize their dreams for their homes.” In fact, over the last 100 years, von Hemert Interiors has achieved that. “Customers have been coming to us, knowing that we add value every step of the way by offering ideas,” says Kelly, “putting those ideas onto paper and creating a design that is both functional and beautiful.” CH

Kitchens

T

HE KITCHEN has long been considered one of

the most crucial elements, or the main “hub” of a home. With so many options for appliances, cabinets, countertops, hardware, tile, and finishes, it’s no wonder why it can be overwhelming to select just the right design. “The kitchen is the heart of the home,” says Barbara Sallick, co-founder and Senior Vice President of Design, Waterworks. “It is a space that should be personal and functional in equal measure…A cohesive design that aligns with other rooms in the house both in color and style is an important component of a great kitchen. Think of the cabinetry in the kitchen as your little black dress but don’t forget the jewelry, while hardware, fittings, and accessories complete the picture.” Here, we’ve highlighted our top favorite kitchens from notable California designers equipped with some of the latest and greatest appliances and gadgets. For Cliff and Laura Muller founders of West Hills–based fullservice design firm Four Point Design Build Inc. ( fourpointdesignbuild.com), a good kitchen goes beyond creating the proverbial “super-triangle” for optimal flow and function. “Kitchen design is so much more,” explains Laura. “When we approach any new kitchen project we always consider the client’s lifestyle and purpose for the space first, as this will inform everything that follows during the design-build process including things such as the client’s age and physical condition especially when considering drawer hardware, height, and ease in accessibility, cooking and food preparation habits, and eating styles. Understanding the client’s lifestyle is the key to a happy kitchen.” The duo, who recently completed a kitchen for a 1970s, two-story California ranch-style home in West Hills, appointed the space with LED recessed can lighting, custom hand-stained solid oak flooring, custom-designed kitchen table, bench, and formal seating, classic Italian white subway tile, and neutral-toned organic linen shades and pillows. “Our inspiration for this beautiful kitchen was our client,” says Laura. “After a lifetime of sacrifice, volunteerism, giving, loss, and selfless generosity, our client was enjoying her very first-ever remodel in what has become her family’s legacy home. Certified by the Culinary Institute at the age of 72-years-old, the kitchen has always been her special place. For over 40 years the kitchen was the spirit of her home, filled with life, love and family, but it has never been efficient.” n addition, there were other existing features that needed to be reconfigured including the countertops and seating. “There was 66 | CALIFORNIA HOMES

Kitchens

basically no functional countertop space, loads of wasted storage space too deep to access, low drawers that were too small and difficult to open, and absolutely no place to gather comfortably for her large family and grandchildren,” says Laura, who also outfitted the space with a Rohl faucet, Thermador appliances, and a custom-shaped table (topped with Caesarstone to match the countertops) and bench with one side designed to allow an easy pathway for kitchen traffic. “Her only dream was to have enough seating in the kitchen for the generations of family who gathered in her home. Feeling her dreams were at a dead end and change was an impossible task, she also resigned herself to the possibility of ever having enough countertop space to create her spectacular Greek specialty pastries. 68 | CALIFORNIA HOMES

Now, she has both. She will often say, ‘my dreams have come true!’” For a Rolling Hills, California–based couple (originally from Brazil), Cooper Pacific Kitchens (cooperpacific.com) designed two distinct kitchens: a main kitchen with a European-inspired, modern aesthetic with warm neutral tones and Gaggenau appliances, and the other with distressed and stained butternut wood cabinets, a hammered copper sink, a beer tap, pizza oven, and an eyecatching royal blue La Cornue Chateau range designed as a nod to the family’s native Brazilian roots. “The clients were amazing to work with, they are such a lovely and warm couple,” adds Steven Cooper, Principal Designer and owner of Cooper Pacific Kitchens. “They readily encouraged us to see their vision and


pushed us to find ways to speak to their desires of having two very different spaces separated by just a wall. Two kitchens, one home, just feet away from the other, and opposite ends of the design spectrum but completely in harmony with their home and lifestyle.” One of the big design challenges was to make sure the two kitchens were singular in purpose, but cohesive in the overall home design. “Not many homes have multiple kitchens and certainly not back-to-back like this,” adds Cooper. “But without hesitation, their vision and desire was clear: ‘satisfy our desires to have these two spaces for cooking and entertaining to fit our moods and desires of how we want to live.’ We also pulled storage

functionality into the large larder/walk-in/chef’s pantry space so that helped solve some of the storage needs.” Torrance–based kitchen mogul Phil Norman, ASID, CID, and Principal of Norman Design Group (normandesigngroup.com) recently designed a Cape Cod-style kitchen and butler’s pantry for a family of five in Palos Verdes Estates. “The client really wanted a peaceful serene gathering for their family after a busy hectic day,” adds Norman of the kitchen lined with Waterworks, Zinc pendant lamps from Urban Electric Co., backsplash tiles from Ann Sacks, an architectural soffit design by Norman Design Group (NDG), and European-fumed rift cut oak floors. “They wanted it to be easy to flow around and be

fresh and full of natural light. We used rift cut oak for the island counter top to provide some warmth so it wasn’t all one material. The countertop is a black basalt honed to provide contrast in an all-white kitchen.” Intended for large family meals and heavy entertaining, Norman explains they allotted 60” between the island and main cabinetry for ease of flow and gathering. “The kitchen is equipped with a 60” Wolf range and two large sinks, pot filler, an integrate Mile cappuccino machine, and two 36” refrigerator freezer towers with chalkboard detailing,” says Norman of the space lined with an antique SUMMER 2017 | 69

rug dyed in a contemporary teal and navy blue for a bohemian vibe. The adjacent Butler’s pantry (designed to blend in with the main kitchen design) is differentiated with sliding cabinetry doors for wine and dessert glasses and unique details by NDG with inspiration from an old Butcher Boar deli chalk board. “We inlaid slate tile and wrote down and got recipes and things that were special to the client,” adds Norman. “We had an artist write them on the slate tile, seal them, and install them so that it was extra special for the client. This also

serves as a great catering area for all the entertaining the client does.” Waterworks’ (waterworks.com) rich blue-and-white design serves as a backdrop for the company’s own Regulator faucet that follows the design template of industrial boiler room controls indicative of the early 20th century. “My favorite Waterworks item for the kitchen is always the faucet,” says Barbara Sallick, Co-Founder and Senior Vice President of Design, Waterworks. “It can be purely functional, or a grand design statement such as our large-scale Regulator. It is the most used item in the space, needs to feel good in your hands, and look good and work well. The kitchen sink is another favorite item. No longer just your basic stainless appliance, it can be oversized and deep with drain boards and multiple bowls constructed of fireclay, metal or stone. Finally, hardware is the jewelry of the kitchen (or any other room). Each piece adds texture, color, profile and proportion to a drawer or door. Hardware


personalizes the kitchen with style and ease of movement.” The kitchen cabinetry Porcelanosa (porcelanosa-usa.com), developed and manufactured by Gamadecor in Castellon, Spain, features modern shaker cabinet doors (part of Gamadecor’s Emotions line) in Porcelana Mate, a matte lacquer finish. “The inspiration is modern farmhouse chic,” says Sarah Garner, Senior Kitchen Designer in Porcelanosa’s West Hollywood showroom. “A concept equally at home in a Spanish-Colonial chateau in the hills of Napa Valley, California, or a vintner’s 18th-century barn house in Provence, France.” Porcelanosa’s designs can be customized to fit just about any need in an array of 60 different colors and finishes. At Snyder Diamond (snyderdiamond.com), choose from approximately 50-60 kitchen manufacturers (and nearly 200 plumbing lines.) “If we don’t carry a line there is a good chance we will find it

and procure it for you,” says Russ Diamond, President of Snyder Diamond. Standout items at the showroom include the a 60-inch Deluxe Grill with double side burner by Hestan with front control panel LED lighting and patent-pending motion-activated Stadium Lights™ (halogen under-hood lighting illuminates cooking area), and a K-Smoke-42-R Freestanding Smoker Cabinet by Kalamazoo developed by Kalamazoo Grill Master and Chief Designer Russ Faulk. “The smoker cabinet brings complete charcoal smoking innovation to the outdoor kitchen,” adds Diamond. “This is a gravity-feed and sealed system that can accommodate a single seven-pound load of charcoal that will maintain an ideal 225-degree smoking temperature for up to 16 hours.” Another highlight is the K750GS Gaucho Woodfired Freestanding Grill with Side Burner by Kalamazoo. “It’s a Santa Maria-style Argentinian wood grill that has a gas starter system that

entire designated wall that transforms into a multi-functional space for accessories and storage, and the Unique collection replete with materials such as Corian, natural stones, and solid Fenix laminate.

had Eisner recalls the first time he saw the Marina del Rey penthouse he would be designing for his client. “There was a lot of heavy green marble,” he said, adding that he was reminded of the glitzy 1980’s series Dynasty’. “We had to strip it down to get it to a place where we could see through all t h a t . T h a t ’s w h e r e w e started.” The interior architect and designer, founder of Santa Monica-based C. W. Eisner, didn’t have to try too hard to impart his vision to his client, Nikita Kahn, a lifestyle blogger and interior design enthusiast. As a creative person herself, he said, client and designer “had a good working dynamic and exchange.” The 3,000 square foot space is a second home of sorts for Kahn, who has a boat in the nearby marina and uses the newlydesigned place as a weekend base, or to host out-of-town guests. “She had a real sense of what she wanted, and a real understanding of the pieces she had in mind. She was very hands-on throughout,” said Eisner. Working with Severine Tatangelo of Malibu architect firm Studio PCH, and Los Angeles-based contractor Shawmut Design and Construction, Eisner kept his client’s brief uppermost in his mind. “She wanted it to have a very airy feel, like it’s up in the clouds.” Clean, spare lines helped achieve that effect. The eye is drawn out over the blue waters of the marina, the cool and neutral colors of the interior spaces enhancing the natural light coming in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. The open plan living/ dining room is outfitted with striking and strategically-placed pieces, like a chandelier from Pagani Studio sourced through Holly Hunt.

“The light reflects back off the chandelier, which is made from individual cut crystal and is a modern take on a crystal chandelier,” said Eisner. “The client liked the idea of a little bit of romance.” A series of Brno chairs from Knoll is set around the Paul Evans dining table found by the client, the space enlivened by a couple of bold Pablo Picasso paintings. The Minotti sectional sofa was customized with fabric from Cowtan & Tout and sits near a customized coffee table hand-made by a master craftsman. The pleasing color scheme continues through to the Bulthaup kitchen. Intriguing textures come from elements such as the shellstone around the fireplace. “We wanted that textural earthy quality without going too far,” said Eisner. “There’s a fine line with some stones they look like they come from medieval times and you lose the refinement of something that’s very tailored.” Each of the three bedrooms has unique features - whether an upholstered leather wall, a vivid Alexander Calder tapestry or a sleek bathtub behind a Japanese Shoji screen; push a button and it slides to reveal the glorious water views outside. “Throughout, we wanted to find pockets of softness, to have that balance where nothing is too cold and severe but instead there was warmth and luxury and plushness.” The project fit in with his overall aesthetic. “I imagined it like cutting a tailored suit for someone. It really has to fit. I always start with that with my spaces, that they should be comfortable and there isn’t a location there that you don’t feel like you can’t sit on. There are some contemporary projects where there is no room for the person, that they feel like monuments to architecture and design. But with my homes, there has to be a sense that people really belong there.” CH

R

ANDY BOYD, principle of Thurston/Boyd Interior Design in Laguna Beach, relishes a design challenge. “We had designed this couple’s Newport Beach home so when they approached us about re-designing their yacht we were ready for a new experience.” After decades of experience with design projects throughout the country and even Great Britain, Boyd was delighted to work with people he already had a personal relationship with. In fact, that is what his company is known for: integrating clients’ preferences and needs with expressive interior design. The yacht owners had had their Fleming 55 for years, so it needed revitalizing for their cruises up and down the California coastline and frequent visits to Catalina Island. They especially liked this yacht because they could handle it themselves without a crew, and yet it was equipped to do serious cruising.

“The owners took us for a cruise in Newport Bay one evening so we could get the feel for the yacht and understand what they wanted,” explains Boyd. “We pulled together a color palette of aquas, camel, black and whites that the owners approved on the first go around.” An unusual challenge that Boyd had was to make the yacht canine-proof since the owners’ three Golden Retrievers went on every trip. “The dogs love the boat so we had to consider them when we were redesigning the interiors and exteriors.” Thurston/Boyd reupholstered everything on the yacht using durable outdoor/indoor fabrics that would endure the sea air as well as the animals. The new color palette gave an immediate fresh look that made the yacht seem brand new. “It was always fun to work with wonderful clients again,” remembers Boyd. “And we may have a new project with them coming up since they’re considering buying a new, larger yacht.” And Boyd will be ready to again make things ship shape.

N THE SHORES OF AN INLET IN MONTECITO

an aptly named private property, Sandcastle, blends Pacific Rim-inspired architecture with bountiful drought-resistant landscaping—think Canary Islands date palms and succulents. The unmatched views of the Pacific Ocean are captured from an extensive terrace that runs the length of the ocean-facing side of the house. Birds-of-paradise in large colorful vessels and orchids infuse the space, while plentiful seating and dining areas beckon to stop. Monarch butterflies fill the air with their brilliant orange and black, white-spotted wings, dolphins and sea lions play in the water, boats sail by. This lush oasis is the creation of Nina Terzian, who together with architect James Mayo Macari, built the main house on the one-acre oceanfront property, which when Terzian purchased it, had just a modest guesthouse and two cabanas on it. “I wanted to be surrounded with serenity,” says Terzian. “It’s peaceful, Garden of Eden-like.” The 3,500 square foot, 3-bedrooom, 3.5-bath main house has an unencumbered flow. Dark cherry wood floors unify all the spaces, including bathrooms. Even the decking is the same shade. “There’s no break,” notes Terzian. “It’s continuous. It’s California. We live outside.” A well of energy, selflessness, creativity and humor, Terzian cherishes every bit of her paradise. She handpicked each one of the succulents in her 1,500 square foot ‘coral reef’ garden. “I’ve been working on this labor of love for about ten years,” she notes. She sprinkles sand from the beach over the dirt and scatters seashells throughout to emulate ocean reefs. She also raises endangered Monarch butterflies on the property. “I have my own little habitat where I raise them,” she says. “I give everyone that visits a milkweed plant to help rehabilitate the species and I also give tours of the butterfly garden to children.” In fact, this year she was named Citizen of the Year at Montecito Association’s 31st Annual Beautification Day for her work. “Nina has a very active design mind,” says Macari—a wellknown local architect specializing in green building who has worked on several of Terzian’s residences over the years. “So once the spaces were created, she added intrigue with various finishes and with Asian furnishings.” Red lacquered cabinetry

pops in the kitchen, an enormous hand carved wood 1800s Chinese lotus piece hangs in the dining room and a sari artfully creates a canopy in the master bedroom—to name a few examples. Her ingenuity and attention to detail spans from architecture to construction to interior design. Exterior marble steps are embedded with fossils and all of her fireplaces have tempered broken glass in them. “ I call them fire and ice.” She chose azure blue tinted glass windows and doors to help cut the brightness of the sun, while intensifying the color of the sky and ocean. A sand-painting technique for the two cabanas’ decks and exterior steps was selected in keeping with the locale. The feeling one gets at Sandcastle is spiritual, just as intended. “It’s like falling in love,” says Terzian. “The beauty takes over.” CH

NOWN FOR MEGA MANSIONS,

of all styles architect Richard Landry and his Landry Design Group faced a different challenge creating a vacation home on the shores of Lake Michigan for a long-time client and his family. Although at 9,000 square feet the house is still amply large (“it’s all a matter of perspective,” chuckles Landry, whose primary Los Angeles residence for the client is many times that size), the family wanted an unimposing home with a cottage feel. “They wanted it large enough for expanded family, but with a sense of intimacy,” clarifies the Malibu architect, a native of Quebec. For Landry and associate Mark Savary, that meant puzzling together a complicated melange of rooflines, including eyebrow

The carriage house, which juts in front of the main house and is the first structure encountered at the end of the long, tree-lined storybook drive, also deflects the home’s scale with its lower roofline. Vintage Great Lakes summer houses, as well as the classic summer homes of Rhode Island and Cape Cod, inspired the design. “The nice wooden corbels, the paneling, and the railings are all details that reflect this cottage inspiration,” says Savary. Features like the exterior’s gabel vents, which were predicated on old summer house dovecotes, add to the vintage ambiance. Crisp, white paint was fundamental to the cottage character.

Inside, provisions for extended family included two master suites upstairs, as well as multiple public rooms that allow different groups of family with varying agendas to gather in comfort without disturbing the others. Not only is there a spacious downstairs screened-in porch looking onto the lake that can quickly become a four-season room when windows are added, there’s another screened porch upstairs. “These different rooms are places for family to gather,” says Landry. Other gathering spaces include upstairs and downstairs great rooms, a living room, dining room, library, and a basement rec room. “Even on holidays, when it’s cold outside, the kids can sleep on the upstairs porch in their sleeping bags,” says interior designer Joan Behnke, who has designed everything from office buildings to airplanes for the client. “There’s plenty of room to gather, yet the rooms aren’t overly large.” Pocket doors are important in allowing the spaces to feel SUMMER 2017 | 115


expansive or intimate, depending on the homeowners’ desire. When the doors are opened, the rooms flow from one to another without interruption. The open flow is one of the architects’ concessions to modernity. “Vintage summer homes have hallways,” says Savary. “There are almost none here.” And despite certain cottage references, freshness is conveyed through large windows and random-width board-and-batten siding. “It feels like an older home, but when you actually look closely, it is not typical,” suggests Savary. “Our client grew up in Michigan, and he wanted this to be a place where his family could share the experiences of his upbringing,” explains Behnke. “It’s a wonderful place for boating and a low-key pace in the summer, but it’s also great for holidays,” she says. “The architecture lends itself to both.” Unlike her client’s California home in a gated community, this one is “about a sense of community. The lots are long and narrow, but no one has fences. The charm is that everyone has these grand lawns leading down to the lakeshore.” The palette draws from the natural environment, pulling in “the blues of the water, the green of the trees.” neutral fabrics and finishes create sophistication without formality. “It’s not fussy. It feels easy—what you would want in an overgrown cottage.” CH

Elegant Restraint THE SAN FRANCISCO DECORATOR SHOWCASE CELEBRATES 40 YEARS TEXT BY KENDRA BOUTELL T H E M A C K H O U S E , an exuberant Classical Revival mansion in Pacific Heights, set the stage for the San Francisco Decorator Showcase’s fortieth year celebration. Built in 1904 and designed by the esteemed architectural firm of Newsom & Newsom, the three-story manor hosted twenty-eight interior and landscape designers. In juxtaposition to its beaux art embellished shell, many of the rooms displayed an elegant restraint. For the light filled Penthouse Living Room & Bar, Catherine Kwong, echoed the mercurial tints of its Bay and City views. Inspired by the rugged California Coast, the designer centered an iconic walnut Nakashima Cocktail Table in the living room. A minimalist L shaped sofa positioned against plaster and wood board walls provided relaxed seating. The white oak frame boasted moss velvet covered boxed seat cushions with a matching linen for the backs. Tone on tone embroideries of native wildflowers adorned each of the linen cushions. The flora and foliate motif continued adjacent to the bar where Stevie Howell’s custom painted wallpaper formed the backdrop for a seating vignette.

MESTIZO SUNSETS

Decoding wine grapes in Southern California BY KENNETH FRIEDENREICH

IF YOU’RE GOING OUT ON A LIMB, remember where you put the tree.

I wager if I say free associate to the words, “wine country,” my readers will likely conjure a Napa Valley image. This is understandable; but there is more than meets the vine. The Napa/Sonoma nexus is hard to overlook. California’s physical reality is overwhelming. From the more than 1,100 miles of coast to myriad mountains, valleys, and onerous deserts, this physical reality commands respect. But it’s just a modest pull compared to the psychological and spiritual gravity this place exerts, and in particular, southern California, the main focus of this and some future columns where we taste wines from Temecula, Ramona, and Malibu. All you have to do is look at the “Hollywood” sign on a clear night and you step into our collective unconscious, like Norma Desmond ready for her close-up. The West was mythologized even as land was obtained by the time the Frontier closed about 1893. Welcome to southern California, with its Mestizo sunsets of aquamarine, cerulean, copper, gold, quicksilver and so much promise that tomorrow’s show will be about the same time. We imagine ourselves riding or sailing into this dissolve. So, where’s the wine. With 138 AVAs throughout, California wines are ubiquitous. We tend to forget that “wine country” in our state really means much more than Napa and Sonoma counties, that ballast the state’s enormous wine industry. California accounts for 83% of all domestic wine production and $34.1billion domestic and $6 billion export sales as reported by the California Wine Institute recently. This sector of our economy is flora abundant, like the vines on litters

brought to Moses after a scouting expedition during the Exodus. In fact, viticulture in California first migrated from the south before arriving from the east because from his second 1493 voyage Columbus transported vines for planting in the New World. The Spanish introduced viticulture in the half century following that voyage, and the migration to Alta California started in 1769, when Mozart already had written an opera. The “rosary of missions” traveled up the coast to north of the Golden Gate, 21 in all. Today, 11 AVAs reside in the southern part of the state. With about 200 wineries currently active from Ventura to the border at Tecate, where Mexico’s primary wine land continues the story in a reverse, complementary direction. Temecula area wineries flew under the radar after the first vines took root in 1968 in an effort to anticipate growing demand for varietal wines. Of course, vines grew here for centuries in the area, well before Napa Valley was rich and famous. This valley is the toe of Riverside County where it nudges San Diego County. Its hillsides roll, but not gently. The soil layer is thin and the whole is semi-arid. Growers need irrigation. The saving quality of marine air in nocturnal attire moderates temperatures that can, as in 2016, exceed 115 degrees during a heat spike. That hurt, but it is hardly common. This is also elevated wine land, about 1400 feet above sea level. Altitude tends to concentrate the varietals its soil sustains. Temecula offers perhaps a stern ambience, but it is very welcoming. In the old days, you may have driven here for a round of golf

between quaffs at the likes of Bailey, Callaway, or Cilurzo, all still thriving. Images of Napa’s dignified rows covering about 4500 planted acres exceed the 2525 planted in Temecula, but the feel of the latter is expansive, and the wineries are eclectic and very individual. Devin Parr, who represents many of the growers and vintners, agrees that the AVA is both making wine and establishing traditions that suit the environment. Having been absent for about a decade from this wine country, I noted the assertive, confident kinds of wine suggestive of grapes now grown more comfortable in their own skins. Our rounds included Mira Monte, with its terraced syrah vines nearby, Bailey, with its wonderful library vintages, Lumiere, with its Cabernet-centric focus, Thornton (nee Culbertson) with its stellar Blanc de Noir, Cougar and its Italian varietals, Mount Palomar, founded by broadcaster John Poole, and is now overseen by James Rutherford, whose pedigree includes the Napa Rutherfords and Younts of 19th century Napa wine production. He avers that his southern trek just was following the dream by going south. We rusticated at the Temecula Creek Inn, a lodge in the woods style of hostelry though dated, is close to the wine trail. We dined at the expansive Vineyard Rose of the South Coast Winery, where grilled salmon found solace with one of the proprietor’s, Jim Carter, poured a mid-bodied Merlot. I urge readers to decode some Temecula grapes, not to foil the prominence of wines up North but on their obvious merits. And I still know where I put the tree. CH
